High Porosity Hair- If you have high porosity hair, water and oils can be easily absorbed, but your hair will have a hard time retaining that moisture. This can lead to hair that’s dry, frizzy, and prone to tangles and breakage. looks and feels dry.
Low Porosity Hair- The cuticles tend to overlap each other and are tightly packed together. Because there are no spaces between the cuticles, it makes it harder for water, as well as products like oils and conditioners, to deliver moisture to the hair shaft.
Dry Thirsty Hair- Dry- hair is simply hair that doesn't have much moisture in it. Hair follicles are connected to sebaceous glands, which release sebum or oil onto the hair shaft. People who have dry skin tend to have dry hair, too. Hair can also become dry from practices that strip the natural oils from the hair, such as swimming in salt or chlorinated water, overuse of hair dryers, other styling tools or heavy manipulation without replenishing the moisture.
Type 3 Hair- Curly hair can range from loose, buoyant loops to tight, springy corkscrews which have some sheen but are prone to frizz.
Type 4 Hair- Coily hair, commonly referred to as Afro-textured or kinky hair, is naturally very dry and spongy in texture and can be soft and fine or coarse and wiry. Strands form very tight, small curls of zig-zags right from the scalp and are prone to major shrinkage.
Locs- also known as dreadlocs or dreads are a style in which hair is sectioned into small segments and twisted then left to grow without combing out or re-twisting the sections. Over time the hair locks onto itself making it difficult for it to unravel.
Relaxed/Transitioning Hair- A relaxer is a type of lotion or cream generally used by people with tight curls or very curly hair which makes hair easier to straighten by chemically "relaxing" the natural curls.
Transitioning is a simple process of growing out your relaxed texture before cutting off the processed or damaged ends.
